magical monster girl

Modern Monsters
  • Demon kids loitering outside of convenience stores, lighting up cigarettes with their own flames
  • Werewolf girls snarling at men who dare to cat call them, baring fangs to show they are not to be trifled with
  • Sirens crooning into a mic in a smoky bar, voices resonating with otherworldly passion
  • Vampire EMTs taking night classes and struggling to get into medical school
  • Alarunes dutifully tending to their gardens, whispering encouragement to their seedlings
  • Satyrs being the most charming baristas ever seen, flirting with every customer
  • Gorgons uploading fashion tips and make up tricks onto their blogs
  • Nagas chatting with their centaur friends about how hard it is to workout when you’re not bipedal
  • Sphinxes posing annoying riddles at a train stop and then leaving
  • Hybrid monster kids not being sure where they belong but learning to love themselves anyway

The term sea witch, swamp witch, lake witch and the myriad of other diversions of the source are a largely colloquial term for an number of aquatic magic wielders, a completely ambiguous term that holds no racial identity. One of the unifying elements are the innate magical abilities of these aquatic beings and use of magical objects to intensify said abilities.

A Hippocampus horn is one such a prized tool amongst sea witches, while a unicorn horn is the sought after tool of choice for the bog, swamp and related “witches”. Such an object has many magical abilities and purposes, with one being the ability to breach the surface of their underwater realms and fly.

A Swamp Sod, the solitary and less aggressive member of the “sea witch” term, will regularly travel from swamp to swamp as their homes dry up. While typically not a collector or purveyor of magical objects, here a Sod stumbled upon a long since dead skull of a once shackled unicorn, and is making its maiden flight.

A Golden crab adorns it’s head, a powerful ritual item and trusted familiar, whispering incantations of tempest proportions. These trusted familiars are commonly mistaken for will-o-the-wisps
